It was during my first trip to Morocco that I became aware of the problem with fake designer bags. As I rounded the corner and passed by a bustling market, I noticed stalls and stalls full of them. It was clear to me that this was a major issue, and I felt a sense of sadness for the people that were buying these bags.
At first, I assumed that those with the bags knew they were fakes. But the more I walked through the markets and spoke to the locals, it became evidently clear that a lot of people had no idea. It seemed that some of these stalls even had staff that had been trained to look and sound professional to make people believe their bags were the real deal. I would see them targeting tourists, hoping to take advantage of their lack of knowledge when it came to designer goods.
It became apparent to me that fake designer bags were accessible and affordable to the local population, that they were being enticed to buy them. This had a massive negative effect on locals: they were draining their money, buying bags that would not last or resell for louis vuitton outlet as much as the authentic ones.
It was disheartening to know that instead of investing their money and time into something more productive and worthwhile, many were being conned into buying designer bags they thought were of great quality. To make matters worse, some of these knock-offs were even posing a health hazard. With the materials used to make these bags substandard, it was likely that many people who bought them would be exposed to a hazardous material without realizing it.
I began to wonder whether or not there were any judicial systems and laws in place to tackle this problem. Unfortunately, the locals I spoke to did not mention anything of the sort. It seemed that the only way to deal with this issue was to be aware of it and spread the word.
As I continued to wander around the market, I was able to observe how fake designer bags were being smuggled into Morocco. It seemed that many of them were coming from other countries in the Middle East. Many of the bags on display were made in foreign countries, most likely illegally, and brought into the country to be sold to unsuspecting customers.
I also heard stories of y forgot crooks operating undercover, selling fake designer replica bags as if they were the real deal. This was quite concerning, as even I had nearly been tricked by someone trying to sell me an ‘authentic’ bag.
It was sad to see that the people in Morocco were being taken advantage of by fake designer bags. I thought, at the very least, more should be done to protect customers from getting scammed. Perhaps more public awareness campaigns highlighting this issue could be beneficial in addressing this growing problem.
